Names in this post have been changed. As Barbara Bush once said, “I mean, it’s not relevant. So, why should I waste my beautiful mind on something like that…”
Come around my friends. Let me tell you a story and it’s a good one. Long, long ago. In a land far, far away, there was a young and beautiful (OK in my mind) woman who was slowly emerging as a blogger. Well this blogger wrote several blog posts that went viral. Her audience and some might say influence grew.
As the years go by, the young, hot and beautiful blogger (according to her mom) was eventually approached by a well-known Black male misogynist personality. To her surprise he contacts her out of the blue. He asks if he can debate her on his platform. Of course, since this is a young, hot, savvy and beautiful blogger (according to her mom) she asks why. Well, the misogynist responds by saying it would be a “mutually beneficial relationship.” From his inference she interpreted this as meaning creating a faux beef. The young, hot, savvy, smart and of course beautiful blogger (according to her mom) has been in politics FOR YEARS. She is pretty astute in the game of deal making and knows a few things. First, she knows never to give your opponent an advantage by appearing on their platform without a moderator. Secondly, she believes in honor, integrity and being honest with her work as a blogger and most importantly with her blog followers. She of course, without hesitation and reservation respectfully declined. Within moments of rejecting his offer the Black male misogynist was no longer being respectful. He started to troll her. He proceeded to call her names on a major social media platform. That’s when the young, savvy, hot, smart, beautiful and astute blogger (according to her mom) put the mofo on ignore. She has enough class and decency never to put he who shall not be named on blast and never will because simply put. He isn’t even on her level.
The moral of the story is this. Many of these Black male misogynists are dependent upon faux beefs via your outrage for Google AdSense income. If you really want to take action don’t watch their videos and they won’t get paid. Notice how the more incendiary their comments are the more views they have. They have an incentive to say outrageous things.
I’m finished marching, holding signs and writing letters. I prefer to hit Black male misogynists where it hurts so implore you to stop watching their videos. When you create response videos, posts, etc. you only drive traffic to their site. I have seen other folks do it and I will not judge them but know this, that means more money for them. Learn from those who are in power. Those in power never name a weak opponent. They pay no mind to them. To do so would give your opponent instant credibility and lower you to their level. On this site we do not name names because these people are shameless and lack credibility. Some may disagree and I understand but again people only respond when you attack their resources. Putting them on ignore is the only way to do it.
Here is what I want you to do. Ignore them. Don’t share their posts or act like they don’t exist. They hate us? So freaking what. “If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.― Sun Tzu, The Art of War The point is when you live your life and you will leave them broke. That my dear is the sweetest revenge.
Think and be limitless.
